I think we're saying the same thing, if you're using the comma the way
americans use the dot for indicating decimal; did 8,255 mean "8 +

Briefly -- it means that if I set the "subdivisions" to 4 (i.e. the
"rhythms" will be quantized to "sixteenth notes"), I will not be able
to generate something that lasts a total of 25.2 beats, since 25.2 is
quantized to 5 subdivisions per beat ("sixteenth-note quintuplets).
